Shakespeare also makes people know how rich Capulate is by the serving man saying “save me a piece of marchpane” marchpane was very expensive. In the next part of the Act 1 scene 5, Shakespeare introduces Capulate and all the men and women who are coming to the party. Shakespeare also makes the scene a spectacle to watch with all the expensive clothes and lots of movement on stage, for the audience this would be very exciting to see. For many of the actors these expensive costumes would be their prized props, Patrons usually gave costumes to the actors to help further create more excitement to the performance. Shakespeare then adds a further layer to the performance by having music play, which makes the atmosphere even more exciting.
This overall gives us an insight into the party and its meaning in chapter 3. Later on the reader finds out more about the mysterious character of Gatsby by the gossip surrounding him. A girl talking to nick during the party says “You look at him sometimes when he thinks nobody’s looking at him. I’ll bet he killed a man”. By saying he “killed a man” the woman adds curiosity around Gatsby as he has let little slip about him, therefore increasing how mysterious and extravagant his life could be behind closed doors.
They are said to have joked around a lot, seemingly having fun while playing a prank by coming “early to the Queen’s bedchamber one morning; dressed in short coats of Kentish cloth, with hoods, bows and arrows, like Robin Hood”. What this implies is that the King trusts his nobility enough that he allows them into the Queen’s chamber. They continued to enjoy themselves later at dinner, when Henry “arranged the seating and joked with all; and had [them] parade in strange costumes before they brought in actors to stage a play.” This could be seen as showing that Henry very much enjoyed the company of his nobility, counting them as his friends. Source 2 is from a proclamation issued by Henry himself, in July 1511, as he was about to go to war with France. Due to the war at hand, “The King commanded all the lords and most of the nobles to prepare as many able men for war as they can muster from their
The Roaring Twenties, characterized by excess, luxury, and sumptuousness can easily be mistaken for a time period full of happiness and elation but after looking closer, it becomes evident that many people who were spoiled with material items were hiding their unhappiness behind their large amounts of money. In chapter three of his acclaimed novel, The Great Gatsby, F. Scott Fitzgerald describes a lavish party scene with detailed imagery and heightened senses in order to display the excessive grandeur of the Roaring Twenties, the hidden imperfection behind the affectation of happiness, and the normalcy of this two-faced lifestyle. Nick closely notes the visual aesthetics and appeal of the party, heavily contrasting luxury with his mundane and dull middle-class living. Throughout the party scene, he notices the abundance of rich colors such as the “dark gold” (44) turkey and “gas blue with lavender beads” (44). The presence of these colors emphasizes the high class luxuries that come along with the people at Gatsby’s party.
It says “Then later at dinner the King arranged the seating and joked with all…”, saying that Henry VIII and his nobility share more than a work relationship and can laugh and joke together. This type of behaviour indicates that Henry VIII probably had little friendships with some of his nobility. But in Source 2 the nobility have angered the King by blatantly disregarding his orders and breaking his laws. When asked to assemble ‘as many able men for war as they can muster from their estates’ some nobles were preparing hired men that are paid for their duties, not men from their tenants or members of household. When Henry VIII was informed of this it say “The King commands this to cease forthwith, and orders those who have made such arrangements to remedy the situation or bear the King’s anger and indignation, to their great danger and peril.”.
HOW DOES FITZGERALD TELL THE STORY IN CHAPTER THREE? Following on from the previous chapters where we were introduced to all the main characters, this chapter is structurally separated into two parts. The first focuses on a lavish party thrown by Gatsby and it is here we witness Nick becoming a participant. In the second part of the chapter, we gain a general context of Nick, our intrafictional narrator’s day to day life. As before, Nick remains our retrospective narrator, “reading over what I have written so far” and Fitzgerald continues to present Nick as an outsider, an observer, listening in.
I was brought to this party by a group of people I was out in Rhode Island with. Though none of them personally know the man Gatsby, the ones who have been to his party before assure me all are welcome. When are car pulled up in front of the magnificent house, my senses where overwhelmed by pleasures of every medium. The music spilling from the back garden sounded no less than a full orchestra. Delightful aromas of mouthwatering dishes wafted enticingly through the grand entry hall.
He would have had the ability to put the bombs anywhere. The bomb failed to go off and Tresckow had to spend time retrieving them. Colonel von Gersdorff, a young officer in Tresckow's circle offered himself as a suicide bomber when Hitler was to open a museum in
“Somebody told me he killed a man once.”...“I don’t think so much that,” argued Lucille skeptically; “it’s more that he was a German spy during the war”(F. Scott 48). This shows Gatsby’s mysteriousness. Everyone’s vision of him is clouded through gossip that they have heard. The quote sounds like kids in the hallway talking about the “new kid” in school. No one is quite sure of who or what he is, and all people have are assumptions to establish their visions of Gatsby.
Catcher shares that theme with Death of a Salesman, as well as the fact that they both serve as a form of satire on a society changing faster than it is ready. In Catcher, the reader takes a trip inside the mind of a young man who is roughly seventeen years old; the reader hears all the thoughts and opinions of Holden, who is very critical of society and every single person in it. Caulfield continuously refers to people as “phonies” and always talking about people and their “phony parties” (Salinger 127) and finds it hard to like anything about people. Holden recognizes his loneliness but does not realize that it is his actions that cause it. He harshly judges people throughout the story and shuts himself off from the world and people without remorse.
